We Need Change! Haiti’s Call for Help…

“We Need Change” was a phrase I heard often on the streets of Port Au Price, Haiti. While shooting photography for “Lespwa Haiti”, a photo documentary project that I am collaborating on with Ray Tollison, it was difficult not to pick up on the sentiments of the Haitian people .

It has been over 6 months since the January 12th earthquake decimated the island nation of Haiti and yet there is still so much to be done. IDP camps litter the capital of Port Au Prince, effectively making over 1,000,000 Haitians vulnerable to what appears to be a very bad hurricane season. However the Haitian people still have hope and optimism in their hearts. Haitians are a hard working people and trust me…there is plenty of work that needs to be done.
